The Peters Township Swim Club is a nonprofit organization in association with the Peters Township Recreation Board. PTSC, operated by members and volunteers, is dedicated to teaching competitive swimming to young people aged 5 to 18 in a team atmosphere.
In order to be rated club level ready and eligible for membership, swimmers should be able to swim at least one length of the pool (25 yards) freestyle and demonstrate proper stroke technique (e.g., head position, use of both arms, proper breathing, etc). Swimmers who are not quite ready for club membership but able to demonstrate basic freestyle technique will be considered for our Novice swim program. The Novice program is designed to teach fundamental proper stroke technique for all four strokes (freestyle, breast, back and fly) with an emphasis on freestyle, and to build stamina in preparation for club membership.
All tryout attendees and their families are invited to stay for the annual “ Splash Bash” party from 7-9 pm at Valleybrook. This will give parents an opportunity to ask questions and swimmers a chance to meet some current PTSC members.
Annual registration will be held at the beginning of the school year.
